Although they won’t be facing each other for another 12 days, the kickoff time for Penn State and Michigan State was just announced, per a release from Penn State. The Nittany Lions and Spartans will kickoff from East Lansing at 3:30 PM ET on ABC.
Similar to Iowa in the 2000’s, Michigan State has proven to be an absolute thorn in Penn State’s side in the 2010’s. PSU is only 1-5 against Sparty this decade, including back-to-back losses where PSU was clearly the better team talent-wise, but could not put it together against Sparty thanks to costly mistakes, Mother Nature being unkind, and wide receivers named Felton Davis making spectacular plays. Here’s to hoping PSU can exorcise the demons this time around!
